Taking the first step to learn about medical alerts can seem
intimidating. Maybe it’s a sensitive subject for Mom, who recently fell. The
topic can be hard to bring up. For someone who was once independent, a medical
alert system may signal slowing down. Yet, the opposite is true for those with mobile medical alert systems.
People with mobile medical alert systems enjoy all the
freedoms they once did. The only difference is now they have help wherever they
are. This allows them to age in place longer. Below, we break down all you need
to know about mobile medical alert devices. By the end of this article, you
will be an expert and mom will be on her way to aging in place with confidence.
First Off, What are Medical Alert Systems?
Medical alert systems are designed to provide peace of mind. They
are pendants worn around your loved one’s neck, wrist or waistline. Equipped
with 2-way speakerphone, the user can connect to our operators 24/7, 365 days a
year. The Alert1 Command
Center is always available to assist if a fall is detected or the
button on the device is pressed.
Who are Medical Alert Systems Good for?
Seniors aging in place aren’t the only ones who use medical
alert devices. Children use Alert1 devices too. Does your child walk home from
school alone? You can have peace of mind for them with an alert system. They
will know that if something were to happen, all they have to do is press their
pendant’s button for help.
Runners also use our medical alerts. When runners wear their
help button, they don’t have to worry about running at night with headphones
on. Freedom from worry is the feeling our members have when they use our alert
systems. No matter what the reason for joining the expansive community of
Alert1, people are happy they do.
What are Mobile Medical Alert Systems?
Mobile medical alerts are different from regular medical
alerts because your loved one can use them outside of the home. Mobile
devices allow your loved one to go anywhere with the comfort of knowing help is
only a button press away. Our home devices are excellent if Mom mostly stays at
home, but what if she wants to go on a walk or to the grocery store? You want her
to have access to help if anything were to happen. This is why Alert1 has
mobile medical devices.
Here’s why Mom needs a mobile medical alert device:
- Mobile medical alert devices can be used in the home
or on-the-go. There are no limitations on range.
- Mobile medical alerts allow your loved on to go
anywhere with confidence. Help is just a button push away.
- Alert1 mobile medical alerts are equipped with GPS technology.
This allows responders to find your loved one in an emergency.
- No base station or landline is needed to use mobile
medical alerts. Your loved one can talk to the Command Center through their
- Mobile medical alerts have a long battery life. When a
charge is needed, your loved one simply recharges the battery.
What Type of Mobile Medical Alerts Does Alert1 Offer?
Alert1 offers two types of mobile medical alerts, the Kelsi
and the PAX. Both devices can go wherever you go. The main difference between
the two is fall detection.
When Mom’s PAX
senses a fall, it notifies our Command Center right away. The Command Center will check to see if she is
OK. If she’s not OK, we send help. If we don’t hear anything on the other line,
we still send help. The GPS and cellular technology in PAX allows responders to
locate her even if she’s lost or disoriented. Should she need help, emergency
responders will be able to pinpoint her exact location.
PAX with fall detection attaches discreetly at the waistline
or around the neck. Enjoy the freedom of living without limitation with our PAX.
The Kelsi is
another mobile alert device that goes wherever you go. If fall detection isn’t a
necessity, this device is a good choice for peace of mind at all ages. Consider
this device for your children walking home from school or on your night runs. Kelsi
is great when traveling across the country. Pack light since there is no need
to charge with its 60-day battery life.
Who’s on the Other Side of the Line?
If Mom falls or presses the help button on her pendant, our
caring U.S. based Command Center will be on the line to help. After
assessing your mom’s condition, our trained operators will contact the next
person in Mom’s Circle of Care.
With Alert1, you are able to customize Mom’s Circle of Care
to fit your family’s needs. We can call you first, a neighbor, or 911—it’s up
